Power of An Edu-Smile? #savmp #teamkid

Recently I bought a Roadrunner mascot costume for our school which my Office Manager and I have been talking about for a couple of years now. It started with me looking through an Anderson's catalog that was in the 'pile' of mail that I usually don't even go through. It made us both laugh and I kept the original catalog for awhile but then never did anything with it.

The idea was rekindled from my time as an Assistant Principal when I wore the Clifford costume during our school book fair five years ago. Our librarian hooked me into it and I can still vividly remember the energy on campus after I ran around into classrooms and 'hung-out' in costume during the fair.

Last Friday morning still has me thinking, what is the power of an edu-smile? I wore our new Roadrunner costume during drop-off and my community is still talking about it, and smiling! What do you do as a leader that gets the people around you smiling?! What's the power in a smile at school? School culture and spirit are paramount for me, the things you do as a leader to build school culture have by far the most impact at your school site.

Please share you edu-smile ideas!
